Unfortunately No.

I did realise after I wrote it that the clue sounded like it might be Stargate,

I knew it when you said 'taxi' but I kept getting interrupted before I could post.

This is a movie (made twice, once in black in white and once in color), based on a book. It takes place post apocalypse, and the remainder of the human race is slowly coming to its end.

Yes, same name, but the black and white version is the more well-known by far. During his career, the director had several movies that were nominated for Academy Award best picture, though this movie was not one of them.

You are correct! From 1959, Gregory Peck, Fred Astaire, Ava Gardner and the last remains of humanity wait as nuclear fallout slowly reaches Australia. Fred Astaire's first straight up dramatic role after years of dancing in MGM musicals.

Your turn.

Could the movie be classified as either sci-fi, horror, comedy, or musical?

Yes, but which one? (Yes or no questions, please.) Clue: the film had multiple Oscar nominations, including one for one of its players.
